HURRICANES REASSIGN TOMAS MALEC TO LOWELL

Defenseman did not play at NY Islanders Wednesday night

RALEIGH, N.C. (Nov. 27, 2003) – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that defenseman Tomas Malec (TOH-mahz MAL-ihtz) was reassigned today to Lowell of the American Hockey League. Malec did not play Wednesday night in the Hurricanes’ 2-0 victory against the NY Islanders because Bob Boughner was able to return.

Malec, 21, has three points (1g, 2a) and 21 penalty minutes in 16 games with Lowell this season. A native of Skalica, Slovakia, Malec made his NHL debut with the Hurricanes on Dec. 15, 2002 at Minnesota and played in 41 games with Carolina during the 2002-03 season, tallying a pair of assists. He was acquired along with Brett Hedican and Kevyn Adams in exchange for Sandis Ozolinsh and Byron Ritchie on Jan. 16, 2002. Malec has 7 points (1g, 6a) in 46 career AHL games with Lowell. A third-round selection of the Panthers in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, he notched 109 points (27g, 82a) in 115 career games with Rimouski of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey Association (QMJHL).

The Hurricanes are in Philadelphia today for Thanksgiving, as they will take on the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday at 1 p.m. (Fox Sports Net, Hurricanes Radio Network). Carolina returns home following the Flyers game and will take on the Pittsburgh Penguins at the RBC Center on Saturday at 7. Individual game tickets for November and December games are available at the Dodge Box Office at the RBC Center, at all TicketMaster locations or by calling TicketMaster at 919-834-4000.
